Purchasing helicopters isn’t something that everyone can do. Most of the helicopters that we have for sale take a long time to find new owners. Part of the reason why it’s difficult to sell a helicopter is because helicopters can cost a pretty penny (even when used). That makes most people careful when buying used helicopters, because they could spend lots of money on a rotten egg. Does this make purchasing used helicopters worth it?
Is buying used helicopters worth it?
You could say that we are a little bit biased, but we think that buying used helicopters is more than worth it. Obviously being sellers of used aircraft ourselves, that’s what we’re going to say, but if you think about the price difference and money saved on a properly restored helicopter, then buying used is more than worth it.
Key thing here is the buying properly restored helicopters. Buying a used helicopter isn’t really that big of a problem if the helicopter has been restored by a proper team of professionals. That’s true for anything really, a car, a bike, a boat. In sense buying a used helicopter is just like buying anything else. So don’t be afraid to look into used helicopters, just make sure you do your due diligence and make sure the team you bought the used helicopter from has experience and good reviews.
